Note how at the time they played in San Fran one night, LA the next two, and immediately played again in San Fran. The night before was originally released on Two from the Vault while the band was still extant, as the first multi-track earlier than the Live/Dead tracks. Then this night was partially released as a bonus to the first album, before also being appended as a bonus to copies of 2frmtVault.

The show is maybe a little above average for '68. the Cryptical through Dark Star sequence isn't radically different from the month before or after but they had a good night. St. Stephen has the apple core lyrics. Unfortunately The Eleven, one of summer '68's best jams, is cut.

C+/3 Stars

Highlights:
The Eleven - albeit partial

SOURCES: The Saks source has filler from an unverified '68 date but the Sniper777 sounds slightly better, has the track boundaries intact, and several needed digital corrections. Alligator though Feedback is officially released on two separate albums.

Even better than the last version, and it's so great to have a That's It that isn't split up into those meaningless track divisions.

I would love to get a copy of this concert. It was my first show and I was in the navy stationed at Long Beach. I had been a fan for about a year or more but after this I was a confirmed Head!

So so odd I happen to come across this recording the exact same day as one of my oldest Deadhead buddies, Jobygoob. Hope all is well with you brother.

And oh yeah, love the recording!
